Quick Tip: Give your apartment a face lift!


October 2, 2012 by Jenn

Painted windowsills and switch plates are an easy and inexpensive way to spruce up your apartment. As a renter, my options are limited as to what can be painted or renovated. My windowsills were a bit dull so I gave them a new coat of white paint and it made such a difference. Most paint stores offer small sample cans of paint that range anywhere from 5 to 8 dollars!

Painting designs onto your switch plates is another thrifty way to brighten up any room. Simply remove the plates, paint them, and then put them back on. So easy! When you move out, all you’ll have to do is replace the plates which are only a few dollars a piece at your local hardware store.

Happy painting!
